One of my systems has a hot-swap eSATA device, which reports as
"ad1". I'm trying to use this to prepare a new disk using gpart and
something (possibly my understanding) is broken.
After removing another disk and inserting the new one, I do:
>> gpart show ad1
=> 34 976773101 ad1 GPT (465G)
34 976773101 - free - (465G)
... which is the value for the disk just removed.
If I do (to start clean):
>> gpart destroy ad1
gpart destroy ad1
gpart: Input/output error
